Island Beach, New Jersey - Saltwater Fishing Report
Atlantic Ocean - Barnegat Lighthouse Proximity.
Ed Crespy

Just an absolutely perfect day on the Ocean yesterday. Very little wind and waves about 1 ft. Catching was decent, but not great. I think it was too nice. Bluefish and Stripers are to be had inshore.... just look for the bait pods and jig (sand eels) or troll with the usual get ups. All are producing.

Sadly, the Bluefin which were so abundant just 2 days ago only showed a few times yesterday. But they are still out there.

Fish Species: Bluefish
Bait Used: Jigs
Method Used: Jig
Water Depth: 38
Water Temperature: 56

Bio: Born and raised in New Jersey, I developed a passion for fishing as a young child. I remember fishing with my father on my uncle's 13ft. whaler. I was 6 or 7 years old and we were fishing in Barnegat Bay for winter flounder. Boy was it cold... but oh so much fun! Now with over 40 years of local fishing experience I do everything possible to create a great fishing trip. No Experience Necessary. My professional approach is that I am always willing to teach a guest how to improve their angling skills. Whether educating children or beginners I am always patient and courteous. However, when guiding hard-core anglers, I understand that catching fish is job one and will do everything possible to locate the feeding fish. Believe me, I want to catch fish too! In addition to great fun, most of the fish we catch are also great eating. Of course, I suggest you only keep what you can eat.
